Yoga is a lifelong practice that goes from what you've done on the mat, into your personal life, and stays with you to forge a shared connection with your sangha, your community. When we practice the physical asanas, we are witness to changes in our physical and emotional bodies. When we teach, we share our passion, knowledge, skill, and love of this practice with our students.
Join Danni Pomplun, Yvonne Kingsley, and team for 6 intensive weekends of learning, introspection, and inquiry for a training that will be sure to make a lasting impression your life.
This Yoga Alliance certified 200-hour training is designed to provide you with the groundwork, knowledge, skill and confidence to begin teaching yoga. Through lectures, practicums, asana practices, external reading, and other activities, you will learn the fundamentals of vinyasa yoga.
This program will run through long weekends (Friday-Monday) in 2020 starting on the first weekend of March through the second week of May with two weeks inbetween each intensive.
The curriculum of this teacher training will cover anatomy, history of yoga, yoga philosophy, intelligent sequencing, teaching methodology, breath work/pranayama, meditation, physical adjustments and assists, and the business of yoga.
Yoga is a metaphor for life. That said, I think yoga should be fun. I’m not saying it won’t be challenging or encourage you to test and expand your limits, but yoga is about your own personal journey, and I don’t know about you, but I want my journey to be a freaking fun one. I am an E-RTY500 instructor, and a member of the teacher training faculty at Yoga Tree. I’m also a real person, and I recognize that I’m teaching real people.
My students resonate with my functional, down-to-earth approach and my ability to combine the mentally restorative aspects of yoga with the functional physical work that it entails. I am grateful to work alongside my teachers and mentors Jason Crandell & Darren Main, who have helped influence my teaching style.
I am deeply committed to living and sharing the path of yoga. Inspired by the power of this practice to transform my life, I left a decade-long advertising career, dedicating myself to help others find a clear and centered place within themselves. As an E-RYT500 teacher, I encourage my students to cultivate awareness, curiosity and compassion - both on and off the mat.
Training extensively with Jason Crandell and Kia Miller has influenced my grounded and intentional style of teaching. My classes blend rhythmic flow, attention to alignment, mindfulness, and intelligent sequencing. I truly believe the holistic practice of yoga gives us the tools to live a more conscious, vibrant and purposeful life.
